Abstract

The article deals with the relevant problem of updating the system of graduate training (master’s degree) in Ukraine. It analyzes the ways of Ukraine’s integration into the European Higher Education Area and the legal framework of higher education in Ukraine and the UK. It also presents a comparative pedagogical analysis of the features of professional training for Masters in Cybersecurity in different areas, as well as the structural, content, organizational and pedagogical principles of master programmes on cybersecurity at the universities of Ukraine and the UK. It is found that the most significant difference is the decentralized management of educational processes at the administrative level. The analysis of the legal framework of higher education shows that it is much better developed in Ukraine than in the UK due to the centralized management of education.

The programmes on the investigation of computer incidents and information technology security are most prevalent at UK universities. It is specified that the number, list and names of educational courses differ significantly, which is explained primarily by the differences in the conceptual framework of the profession itself, the social needs of Ukrainian and British society in such specialists and the ways of promoting this profession in the labour market. Some positive aspects of the organization of master training in cybersecurity in the UK are emphasized. Some promising areas in professional training of Masters in Cybersecurity in Ukraine and the UK are singled out.

Abstract

The article presents the results obtained from a comparative analysis of the introduction of dual education in Germany and Ukraine. The European tendency towards transforming dual learning from vocational education to higher education is described. It is found that the conceptual basis for the introduction of dual learning is the cooperation between employers, educational institutions and students (employees), who are actively involved in learning, work and development of learning programmes for future specialists.

The School Education System Reforms in Modern Poland

Abstract

The article studies the reforms that took place in the education system of the Republic of Poland in 1999 and proceeded in 2009. The structural changes were characterized; the types of educational institutions were given; the changes in programs, forms and methods of a teacher with a student work were analyzed; evolutionary processes in the evaluation system were traced. Special attention was paid to structural changes in school education. The problems of the education system reform in Poland were highlighted (the convergence of learning with the realities of modern life, the upbringing of a modern individual, deprived stereotypes of the past, the democratization of the education system in the light of European experience, preparation for an accession to the EU, the self-regulation possibility of a new educationsystem). The new accents of the school education contents were analyzed (safe and healthy for the pupil’s health, focusing on the construction of their own values systems, their development and improvement, the obligation to enhance children’s independence through the provision of a high level of internal self-government, the elimination of a single educational programme in the senior classes and the opportunity for students to choose their own future profession). It has been concluded that reforms implemented at the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries in the Republic of Poland reflected obvious advantages in systemic educational processes. One of the major trends in systemic reform was the introduction of the three-level structure of the school system “6 + 3 + 3” (six year primary school, three-year gymnasium and a three-year profile lyceum). The result of reforms was the adaptation of education levels and upbringing to periods of children and young people development, ensuring their better understanding of themselves, other people and the world; educational chances equalization; improving the quality of education. The prospective areas of research in this area include the study of reforms in preschool education as a starting point for a holistic education system in Poland, the disclosure of organizational and content aspects of child’s preparation for schooling.
